PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — If you’re a parent, you can probably relate to a lot of the content created by “The Dad.”

Four years ago, Joel Willis created The Dad. He’s a father of two and his website says he “enjoys memes, spending time with his family, and making memes about spending time with his family.”

That’s a huge part of what The Dad is all about.

Willis said The Dad has recently covered a story from Peoria.

It was reported by WMBD’s Kurt Pegler back in April. You can see the story below and The Dad’s coverage.

Willis spoke to Good Day Central Illinois’ Kyreon Lee & Matt Sheehan Thursday morning.
